Railing

The banner or bunting on the balcony is almost certainly mounted on a railing. A number of people are leaning on it.

Creepy Masks!

That guy in that carriage reminds me of the "Burger King" mascot. I don't know why, but I just hate masks. They are the stuff nightmares are made of for me!

Collapse?

My goodness, look at all of those people on top of the balcony. Nothing to hold them back but a banner. Certainly wouldn`t pass the safety standards of today!
